Big Jose and Carolina needed to be in Atlanta at the crack of dawn so they dropped Mauri, Blanca and Baby Yolie off at my house before 7, three more kids didn't add any more work for me, but my children were as distracted as ever.
JoJo's been terribly wound up and emotional, fighting with Allen two nights in a row, crying like a baby at supper over nothing, stomping around this morning with his voice close to breaking...glad I don't teach fourth grade today.
I am finally getting my black roots colored this morning, the lady who used to do my hair moved away, I found another lady that I've known for decades, I don't want someone young doing my hair as stupid as that sounds, I don't want anyone even attempting to make me trendy or halfway up to date. I also don't want any of my smart-mouth kids (Sarah)commenting here that there's no danger of that.
Miriam somehow put her car in a ditch on the dirt road, calling Sonny to help, hoping against hope that Big Mama doesn't find out. But, of course, a busload of narcs (Bubbas) came barreling down the dirt road, no way to silence that crowd as they immediately roared up the driveway to tattle. Miriam quickly called my cell to be the first to let me know...good thing too since within a few minutes Sarah's husband had already told me. "Hadda pull one of your kids outta the ditch," he'd snickered.
OK, girlfriend if you're kin to everyone on this side of the county, it isn't likely you're gonna get away with anything. Let this be a lesson to you.
This was at the same slight curve that Daniel also claimed a tree attacked his truck several years ago. Jesse had to be pulled out right there as well by Chuck one night years ago.
I know that I parented for decades without a cell phone but I can't, and won't, do it anymore. My cell absolutely died and could not be resuscitated 8 days before the contract was up. I stood at the counter at Verizon, asking for Plan B, C and D, before they finally came up with a solution that would not cost me anything. I knew they could.
It is only an 8 day stopgap plan but at least my young'uns can reach me 24-7, or the school or YDC, DJJ, deputies, the mental health facilities....
